This Japanese Pet Groomer Is Transforming Dogs And Their Lives Along With Them

Sometimes our pets can feel like our best friends too…

They’re there for us through thick and thin and tend to love us unconditionally, regardless of all the freakin’ bad decisions we make in life. 

Really, they’re like little superheroes.

Always there for a cuddle when you need cheering up. 

So, it’s nice to treat them every so often. Yoriko Hamachiyo is a Japanese proffessional dog groomer who does just that. She takes pride in transforming pooches, taking them from little scruffs and turning them into models of the dog world.

So, when they leave, they look their absolute best for all of the ‘pup’arazzi out there.

Check them out!



Yoriko sees to hundreds of adorable pooches every single month.

Is it just me, or does this look like a 1980’s yearbook photo?

The cutest freakin’ yearbook photo you’re ever likely to see that is.




Yoriko owns her own pet salon called Yorikoro.

And people travel from far and wide to have their pups ‘revamped’.

And I think it’s safe to say we’re all very appreciative of her sharing her efforts.



Of course, it’s important to note that most of the pooches that visit the salon are already cute in their own right.

But if you’re looking for that ‘next level‘ makeover, this is the place to go.

Plus the dogs look pretty happy with the outcome too.




From “can I please play with you guys“…

…To “you’re not cool enough to sit with us“.

In one fell swoop. Just look at that tongue, I can’t cope!




Bathing isn’t for everyone. I’m guessing this pooch will tell you that.

But how upset can you really be when you end up looking like this as a result?

I want these dogs in my life so bad, but I just can’t get to them.






If i’d have described to you the difference Yoriko’s makeovers make, you’d have thought it was a bit of a far-‘fetched’ claim.

But, she seems to have a real talent for it.

sorry for being so fabulous GIF

She also like to include props like necklaces in her photoshoots- so they look extra F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S.




Looking a little ‘ruff’ there buddy, in need of some freshening up?

How’s that for you? Looking hot and ready to tr… scamper.

I wonder if these pooches know just how good they look at the end of the process? What do you reckon?




Yoriko manages to make some dogs so freakin’ fluffy, they don’t even look like dogs anymore.

Is this a dog or a bunch of silver candy floss? No one knows.

What I do know is that I just want to hold it and never let go!




In fact it’s actually pretty hard to believe these are even the same dogs.

If you’d have told me this pup would look this different beforehand, i’d have said “that’s im-paw-ssible!”.

But Yoriko delivers time and time again.



Is she fur-real? These transformations are pretty special.

Pout for me darling, pout for me!

Get this jumper off me, I only wear gucci now I look this glamorous!



Yoriko does more than simply make the dogs look ‘prettier’.

She also helps to clean and unmat their fur.

Which in turn, helps the dogs to feel happier in themselves (there’s only so much self-grooming can do!).


At the end of the day, the most important thing when it comes to having a pet is making sure that they’re healthy and happy. But, that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with giving them a bit of a pampering from time to time. After all, no matter how bad things get in your life, they’ll always be there for you, so I think they probably deserve it!
